Für die Demi Art Scale Series des brasilianischen Herstellers Iron Studios wurde vor wenigen Tagen eine schicke neue 1/20-Version von Anakin’s Pod Racer anlässlich des 25-jährigen Jubiläums von Episode I vorgestellt.

Wie für Iron Studios üblich, wird die Neuankündigung sehr dynamisch inmitten des Boonta Eve-Rennens gezeigt. Die riesigen Turbinen wirbeln den Wüstenstaub auf und der Pod scheint tatsächlich in der Luft zu schweben.

Im Maßstab 1/20 ist Anakin’s Pod Racer knapp 60 cm lang, 44 cm tief und rund 18 cm hoch. Diese stattliche Größe gepaart mit schwerem Kunststein lässt sich der Hersteller aber auch etwas kosten. Hierzulande hat die Neuankündigung einen empfohlenen Verkaufspreis von satten 949,95 EUR.

Die Vorbestellung ist vor wenigen Tagen gestartet, der Pod Racer wird dann aber erst Anfang 2025 in die heimischen Wohnzimmer rasen.

Over the scorching sands from the desolate and desertic planet Tatooine, among gorges, mountains, caves, and treacherous rocky formations, a dangerous and mortal race competition takes place. Moving in high speed with perilous maneuvers, one-man repulsorcrafts known simply as Podracers compete among themselves, like sleds propelled by big turbine engines. Believing to be the only human being capable of competing, in a scenario in which this sport is usually practiced by aliens from various worlds, an enslaved boy from the Mos Espa market, joins a Jedi master in a bet in which the prize is his freedom. Over a diorama base replicating part of the race’s track, with one of the propeller turbines raising clouds of sand next to the ground, displaying a dynamic scene with the vehicle inclined as if it’s turning a curve, Iron Studios present the statue “Anakin’s Podracer – Star Wars – Demi Art Scale 1/20”, with the young Skywalker in his vehicle built by his own hands, in the emblematic scene where he fights for his freedom in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999) which celebrates its 25th Anniversary, commemorated by Iron Studios with this release!

Anakin Skywalker was born on the desert planet Tatooine, in the Outer Rim Territories, in 41 ABY. He was the son of Shmi Skywalker, an enslaved woman that conceived a fatherless son. His blood had midi-chlorians (intelligent and microscopic life forms that originated from the foundation of life in the center of the galaxy and ultimately resided within the cells of all living organisms, thereby forming a symbiotic relationship with their hosts: The Force), which surpass the Grand Master Yoda and all the other Jedi on the galaxy. The Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn discovered Anakin during the invasion of Naboo in 32 ABY and theorized that Skywalker was conceived by the midi-chlorians. Betting on races was a popular hobby among many in Tatooine,and was through a bet made by Qui-Gon with Watto, Anakin’s owner, that Skywalker was set free. Anakin Skywalker won the Boonta Eve Classic, an annual Podrace and cultural event taking place in Tatooine, happening inside and around the Grand Arena in Mos Espa, defeating the favorite and treacherous Sebulba, and guaranteeing his freedom from a life of enslavement.
